Advice and Consent...

All I need from friends and family

Thank you Grace....I needed to be reminded....This is the advice of my Grandfather and my Father's generation....I believe it still works just as good today!

Hope you are well....

Elisa and I are going to Knoxville Tennessee....to get married this week end....say a prayer for us....
Will spend some time in Florida....Then we will live in Summerville SC. Will live with Eliza's Daughter and Son-in-law... Marcia and Ben...untill we find the right place for us... and our horses...and our dogs.

I am very happy...Eliza is an exceptional woman and I will do all I can to be a good husband...by the Grace of God... we will live in faith, hope, and love.

Take care...God bless you and yours...If y'all or ever in South Carolina, come and see us!

Stephen.

* Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and
bull-strong.

* Keep skunks, bankers and lawyers at a distance.

* Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

Deere tractor.

yelled.

* Meanness don't jes' happen overnight.

* Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads.

gonna happen anyway.

* Don't judge folks by their relatives.

older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

* Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't
botherin' you none.

* The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have
to deal with watches you from the mirror every
mornin'.

* Always drink upstream from the herd.

* Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta
that comes from bad judgment

* Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot
easier than puttin' it back in.
* If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some
influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.

* Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak
kindly. Leave the rest to God.
